E-Brake burnout

on the svt , if the E-brake is engaged can you drop the clutch say on a wet surface like at the track and get a successful burnout or does the e-brake just brake the rear wheels or all 4 ?

IF you have TC without a tune to disable it, the car will fall flat on its face.

e-brake = rear wheels (on most all cars)

I went to the track last week....stop, pull e-brake, hit 4,000RPM....drop cluctch, let it spin, release e-brake, and pull out....there's your burnout......


you can adjust it if you want.....pop out the e-brake boot, and look for the cabe that goes to the rear...thats the e-brake cable....It should be attatched to the cream colored e-brake housing.....there is an adjustment nut on the housing I believe....had to adjust mine when I put an SVT e-brake on my old ZTS......

hope that helps....


Hell yeah, e-brake drifting on wet roads

e-brake drifting is possibly the most exciting thing you can do in a car when its raining! I just love to do that. then see the looks on other peoples faces when you pull a beautiful drift around a left hand turn at an intersection.

I always "launch" my car then pull the ebrake at the track for burnouts. This way, you are slowly rolling at first (drivetrain is moving), and have a greater chance of turning both tires and lifting smoke.
